Fur Elise For Classical Guitar - Awesome sounding piece, this is one of my favorites and if you are new to classical guitar or classical music I guarantee you that this piece will be familiar to you - It is almost as famous as Beethoven's fifth.
5 Preludes - No. 1 in e Minor by Matteo Carcassi - Very easy piece to learn and sounds great because of the minor key. Great first or second piece to learn and right out of the Carcassi Method for classical guitar.

Classical Guitar Sheet Music - 8 Intermediate or advanced beginner
The Four Seasons - Spring by Vivaldi This is a great piece and very famous. I have heard it at least a hundred times in tv shows or movies and it plays on classical radio stations all the time. Give this piece a listen and you will recognize it. It isn't too hard of a classical gutar piece to play but it is a bit fast so I have put it in the advanced beginner section.
Bourree by Bach If you are looking for classical guitar sheet music that has that old renaissance feel to it then this is a perfect choice. It was originally composed for the Lute so it has that "in the kings court" feel to it. Not too hard to play but also moves a bit fast like the four seasons piece.
Ave Maria - (Schubert) This piece is a bit more of a challenge, it is played further down the fretboard and is a little bit involved and takes a bit of work with the right hand. This is a piece for an intermediate player.
Tarrega - Lagrima and Adelita
Green Sleeves Guitar Solo (Guitar Sheet Music) -Anonymous - this is quite possibly the single most famous guitar piece. Everybody has heard this piece and it is a staple of every classical guitarist because it just sounds so good and so renaissance! This particular transcription is really nice in that the melody is carried in the base notes and the treble notes add flavor. This piece is not that hard to play but reading the music takes a bit of time because it is in 6/8 and there are a lot of 16th notes. But once you get the feel of it you will glide right through this piece.
The Tarrega Collection - Outstanding pieces including Adelita, Capricho Arabe and Recuerdos de la Alhambra
Etude 4 from 12 Etudes for the guitar by Fernando Sor - This is a right hand challenge and a solid intermediate piece. It is easy to read but you have to practice the right hand picking a lot to get it to sound smooth. If you want something that will develop smooth right hand picking this is a good piece.
Etude Number 8, No 60 by Matteo Carcassi - This is one of the happiest piecest and the most fun you can have with the classical guitar. This piece will make anybody crack a big smile. It is just a joy to play. Give it a listen. (Here is the sheet music for the complete opus 60 with all 25 etudes)
